LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas Supreme Court has upheld the capital murder convictions of an inmate serving life in prison for the deaths of two men whose bodies were found inside a crushed vehicle at a salvage yard.

Justices on Thursday upheld the convictions of Tyler Barefield, who was found guilty and sentenced to life without parole for the slayings of Aaron Brock and Beau DeWitt. The men were fatally shot, and their bodies were found crushed inside a vehicle at a salvage yard owned by Barefield's family in Russellville.

Barefield's attorneys had argued the lower court should have allowed evidence that they argued would have backed up his defense that the men were slain by someone else.

    And the killer is paying the ultimate price for shooting two people over car parts then crushing their bodies inside a car.

    Terrible judgment by all three men.

    I can understand the anger of being ripped off. When I lived in LR in the 90's my house was hit twice in a year. I was mad, but not crazy enough to do something like this guy did. That's borderline evil.
